Montreal households crowned Canada’s greenest

Huffington Post Canada featured a Canadian Press article on a UBC study ranking the greenest cities in Canada.

The results are based on greenhouse gases produced by households.

Census data from 17 major cities in the country were examined by food and resource economics researchers. The metropolitan areas were ranked based on the amount of carbon dioxide produced by the average family in a year.

Montreal households produced five tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions on average, per year, while homes in Vancouver produced 7.2 tonnes per year, and Edmonton, 20 tonnes per year.
